About Sandra O'Brien
There are two types of clients – “those who have met Sandra and love her, and those who have yet to meet Sandra”.
With over 15 years’ experience in the real estate industry, Sandra’s tenacity in striving to do the right thing has enabled her to excel in specific areas ultimately earning her reputation as providing the utmost care to her clients, achieving the best results, repeat clients and a large amount of referral business. Recognised amidst her peers for her outstanding achievements, Sandra was asked to present as a speaker at the Harcourts National Conference in 2017.
With over $150m in settled sales, positioning her as a consistent top performer in Harcourts, Sandra knows that nothing rivals hard work and a passion for the industry. But to succeed in real estate there is one more component that Sandra believes is vital, and that’s personality. The ability to relate to a range of homeowners, cater to their very distinct needs and build lasting professional relationships is a natural strength. Sandra’s warm, friendly spirit, and wicked sense of humour endears her to those she meets.
So how does she know this strength is attributable to her personal success? The coveted Harcourts Gold Auction Excellence Cup, Harcourts Gold Customer Service Award (both of which Sandra has won twice) and the growing number of testimonials from hugely satisfied clients. The awards sit at the core of her beliefs that actions speak louder than words and always doing the right thing for her clients. She infuses every sale with a customer-focused dedication and has a sound head for business with a proven successful sales record.
Sandra is an integral member of the Harcourts gold Papanui team where her exemplary work ethos sits well with the company vision and values.
